bob kerry. i sat next to him on an airplane a couple of weeks ago. he said he's now within one or two points. is that a possible come-from-behind victory for the democrats? >> bob kerry has absolutely been closing the gap. he, like claire mccaskill has been left for death a month or two or three ago. but he has pulled it close. he has come within striking distance of his republican opponent, who i should say is backed by a significant amount of outside money because the big super pacs, the big non-profits they have seen nebraska as a state where they can flip it from democratic to republican. bob kerry, amazingly has stormed back here at the end and then nebraska has gone from being sort of a snooze fest to a nail biter just in the last two or three weeks here. you know, i don't think anybody can say for certain that republicans have locked it up. >> eliot: i would love to see bob kerry pull that one out. he was an amazing public servant, and he would say stuff that would make you cock your head and say, what did he just say? a navy seal, and if he could come to new york and drink all

, the republican, defeating bob kerry, the senator who came all the way back to his home state from new york city and he was portrayed as a carpetbagger. >> ifill: he was not expected to win but reinclosed the gap. gap. i bet we can find out more b going to jeff brown. >> brown: i bet we can. let's start with nebraska. >> deb fish ser from the northern part the state and she won a surprise primary, where you had two well-known candidates running against each other and surprised everybody and and won in part because of the sarah palin endorsement. people didn't give her much of a chance against bob kerry, particularly because he had been living in new york for so long. this is aery conrvatve state, and the anti-obama vote was going to come out fairly strong there. it's not a huge surprise but it's one the democrats had hope for. >> brown: you had a national figure in bob kerry. >> and in the last week or so, the democrats said the race has tightened. deb fisher, when i interviewed her, nobody thought she would be the nominee. but she was personable, and articulate. >> she's a farmer not an artist.
the best chance for a republican gain in nebraska, bob kerry who served as governor and senator in the past looks to defend the seat held by ben nelson. if kerrey loses, they're expected to control every congressional and statewide office in nebraska. republicans likely to lose a seat in maine ar king considered the favorite to replace olympia snow. in connecticut, former wrestling executive, linda mcmahon pursuing a seat for the second election cycle. reports show that mcmahan spent over $42 million of her own money on this race. a quinnipiac poll shows her trailing murphy. >>> in the state of virginia, former democratic governor tim kaine, former senator allen. >> wall street journal marist poll has kaine holding a three-point lead over allen 49-46. that well within the margin of error. they are tied statistically. elizabeth warren closed the gap on scott brown. the latest u-mass poll finds the race neck and neck. they're at a statistical tie. two other closely watched races pushes women's issues to the front. senator claire mccaskill is trying to defend her seat against todd akin whose m
and nebraska where bob kerry is coming back, but they very well might pick up indiana, benefit of richard mourdock and maine, angus king who is an independent and will caucus. you probably won't see a change. everyone believes the democrats will remain in control and that is not something, tom, they thought was going to happen at the start of the year. >> and let's look at the road map. mitt romney, three events in that virginia. the president heading out west to wisconsin, on the way to colorado and nevada. what do they do the next few days and what does it tell us about where they chose to travel on the few days remain something. >> there was a front-page story in the new york times. i think it's -- in terms of the latino vote. the president leads by 50 points and their idea is in colorado and nevada, a state which david axlerod said they would definitely win and a large latino vote in central florida, which is, when i was in the convention, tampa, the puerto ricans, not cuban americans, they want to draw the vote out. they know they're getting clobbered among white voters and this is a
. >> it tightened up, fisher wins. >> bob kerry keeps it under ten. >> missouri? >> mccaskill wins. it's like philadelphia in the east, pittsburgh in the west and alabama in between. kansas city, st. louis and alabama in between. >> indiana? >> close but i think donely edges, which again obama is going to lose a state, but donely i think will win. but it will be very competitive. >> you know, we skipped one of the big swing ones, wisconsin. what's going to be closer, wisconsin or virginia? >> i have you silent. i have you silent. is wisconsin that close? who would you put on tamy or tommy? >> i think i would go edge to tommy but very close. >> you don't even know what the makeup we've made here. >> maine, massachusetts, connecticut. does anything go red in those three? >> no. >> none of them go red. we're going give indiaependent maine? >> yeah. >> you're going to have elizabeth warren and scott murphy holding on, chris murphy holding on. guess what you end up having? a net zero. 53-48. >> just think how many billions of dollars spent. >> what does it say -- it's a converse we're going to hav
be amazing. >> eliot: bob kerry on an airplane a month or so ago, and he was saying i'm going to close this one. i looked at him accidentcally and said okay, it's a long plane ride, i'm not going to disagree with you. great guy. he would be an amazing upset. >> it's your show you about i want to ask you and jennifer a question i'm lucky enough to be talking to two people who have been elections before. what is going on in the minds of the candidate specifically the two of you but also what you imagine the president and governor romney would be thinking right now as it winds down, what they're doing right now. do they have a realistic impression of how it's going to come out? >> i think that--i think that some of the body language tells you that they have a realistic idea. i think the president is energy "ienergized. mitt romney has looked a little bit tired. you cannot convey that in anyway shape or form. he has added some desperation events tomorrow, including in pennsylvania which shows you he's trying everything he possibly can to pull it out. i think they're counting down the hours
was not that picture. it was never sleeping with che guevara. >> bob: kerry is a highly decorated war hero. i don't know why you pick on a guy like that. he won those medals when you were sitting at home and not in vietnam. >> eric: i wasn't alive. >> greg: but you should have fought. >> bob: you were 7 in '75? >> eric: whatever. >> bob: don't want to give it up. >> greg: i have a theory as you age, people tend to forget how bad you were when you are young because you gape phony respect. somehow that age makes you more full of wisdom when you were a jerk most of your life. >> dana: look at bob. >> greg: that was mean. >> dana: that was a joke, bob. [ laughter ] >> greg: look at that. look at that. >> dana: i was trying to think of somebody else but nobody came to mind. >> greg: bob lived a good young life and bad person later. >> andrea: imagine bob getting an award for his vision? >> bob: leave me alone! [ laughter ] >> greg: we are going to take a break. no more twinkie juice for you. paul mccartney doesn't think americans should eat turkey on thanksgiving. should we give him a pass because he
are dealing with, whether or not it's a flip. this is nebraska as bob kerry tries to return to the political scene in his home state. >> that is a seat held boy a democrat. bob kerry is trying to come back from the seat he retired from 12 years ago. deb fisher the republican seems to be way ahead in what is a heavily republican state there. was a poll that showed it a much closer race. i think presidential coattails will have some significant affect. since the mid 90s we've been less than a split ticket voting public and we've been likely to vote straight ticket. that is going to work against bob kerry and for deb fisher in nebraska. martha: let's take a look at the next one we have. this is the wisconsin race, we saw the former governor of wisconsin tommy thompson as he was interest during governor romney in his own state. this one shapes up very tight right now against representative tammy baldwin, michael. >> tommy thompson came back to wisconsin after working in washington as a lobbyist. after he won the late republican primary by a narrow margin, tamee bald within the incumbent congress
there. he also called bob kerry who lost the race in nebraska. joe donnelly who won the race in indiana. bill nelson, one of the first senators we called who hadn't won reelection in florida. bob case nepennsylvania. by the way, it's important to point out when vice president biden voted today he was actually asked we the pool reporters traveling with him, "is this your last time you'll be on the ballot?" and he grind and said, "i don't think so." >> ifill: how old will he be four years from now? where is mark. >> it's obviously very early to talk about anything beyond this but you will start to hear people talking about anything beyond 2012, and particularly with the president winning a second term. what does it mean for cabinet changes. what does secretary of defense hillary clinton do, does she look at future bid? there are lots of things we can begin talking about. >> woodruff: and we look at the divided government, and the idea the president for the great, whatever victory he apparently is pulling off tonight, he's going to face a congress that is every bit as divide as it was-- i'
the down pal lot push he needs from senate candidate. another outlier very quick which is bob kerry. he's the former senator from the great state of nebraska, lived in new york for ten years. he's running and going to lose unfortunately in my opinion. what's he going to do? he's going to give barack obama one electoral vote. how? because lincoln and other urban areas of nebraska, they split their electoral votes in nebraska and maine. he'll give that vote in 2008. he gets one electoral vote out of nebraska because of down ballot ticket. >> you brought up wisconsin, and that's a state i'm taking a risk on going red. i think the ousting of russ feingold, the election of scott walker, the re-election of scott walker, i think the state is ripe for flipping, but it's a state that is divided often so they might vote for a democratic president but vote for a republican governor or a republican congressman. as you mentioned, tammy baldwin is up about two points over tommy thompson. >> every poll but one has her up from two to six. >> if baldwin wins and if it gets called for baldwin, can we ass
. >> bob kerry is catching up. >> i don't think he'll get there. >> gregg: the unfortunate remark, highly criticized of murdoch -- >> two senate seats. >> one -- >> last time there were three senate seats. weak candidates lost for the republican. >> but the reason this is so important is, i believe, is that the libya thing, if the republicans get the senate and the house, and obama were to be reelected, we're having a mini watergate hearing because it's all going to be the same thing. >> we have a fiscal crisis. we have a -- >> deficit in two months, if we have a divided senate, it's the popular vote goes for governor romney and the president's reelected, who knows what will happen? >> gregg: the city will -- >> after this campaign, with doug and i have written about, after tearing the country apart in divide and conquer, the republican willingness to work with him is not high. >> he said this before which is important, is if we had that split ballot, in other words, they vote popular vote for romney, electoral vote puts obama over the top, or vice verse is a, doug is very smart about it.
that coming. guest: if there is one that will come out of the blue it will be bob kerry winning in nebraska. you saw chuck hagel endorse him. that could be one that comes out of nowhere. guest: pennsylvania will be a surprise on the republican side. i do not expect the presidential race to go in romney's direction. in the senate race, i can see the republican easily win. host: from south carolina on the democrats' line. caller: hi. i am concerned about the experimental software that has been loaded and half of the counties in ohio. i worked as a systems analyst. it would be so easy to have something that would go in and slip votes to where they wanted it to be and you raise any evidence of having been there. i feel 100% that obama would win in a fair election, i am concerns about whether there will be a fair election. host: thank you for the call. every two or four years, we get these calls. what is the process? how are votes tabulated and how are they check and cross checked? guest: from everything i have seen, the civil servants in these states take their jobs seriously. they have a whole

ground to her democratic opponent, former senator bob kerrey. kerry also got a boost from senator chuck hagel, a republican. meanwhile, republicans who had rejected todd akin in missouri after his comments about legitimate rape are now having second thoughts. national republicans won't say whether they're injected funds into missouri, but suddenly akin received more than $2 million in the final days of the campaign. but the extremism is taking its toll on other high profile races in the house. joe walsh in illinois seems to be toast. polls are tightening for steve king in iowa. things are not looking real good for congressman alan west in florida. his republican opponent in the primary just endorsed the democrat in the race. michele bachmann is locked in a tight race against democratic challenger jim graves. the right wing's war on women came up in the last debate. bachmann was asked about richard mourdock's remarks. bachmann wouldn't tell voters where she stood, dodging questions about abortion, access for rape victims. >> you heard what richard mourdock said and you know that has been

as a lost cause for the democrats, but bob kerry's really closed the gap in recent week, and it looks like this one will be interesting at the end, even if it was not for most of the campaign. >> anything surprise you coming out of election night? >> the thing that i am going to be really interested in seeing, if you look at the polls today, it would suggest that we may see for the fifth time in the country, history, and election in which the popular vote goes to one candidate and the electoral vote goes to another. if you throw on to that, you know, which is a pretty polarizing event, the possibility that one or two states end up in recount, i think we could have a very interesting december. >>> we'll have results in the presidential race, senate, and house contests across the country. president obama is in chicago, and mitt romney in boston. we'll focus on the more competitive senate seats and taking reaction throughout the night by phone, e-mail, facebook, and twitter with live coverage beginning at eight eastern on c-span c-span radio, and c-span.org. >> when i watch c-span, i like the
of the campaign here at the end? joining me now is a man who has been on the inside, bob shrum. he was a former aide to the kerry campaign. his article outlines all of the mistakes that could spell defeat for him on election day. bob, thanks for your time. >> good to be here. >> inside the romney campaign there's a desperate attempt to find a route to 270. that's why they are, for example, scheduled a rally in pennsylvania. pennsylvania has been fool's gold for years. john mccain went there at the end of the campaign last time. george w. bush went there at the end of the campaign in 2004. in the end, i think, they can't crack ohio and because they can't crack ohio, they've got to look somewhere else. they are looking are to pennsylvania, minnesota. i don't think they are going to win either of those states. >> now, the campaign's closing argument, we keep talking about closing arguments but they sound very similar to the opening arguments. listen to this. >> i'll lead america to a better place. this is not a time for america to settle. we're four days away from a fresh start. four days away fro
jack reed, and john kerry, the man who talked bob gates into staying at defense in the beginning of the president's first term. and then there's john kerry and some thought there if rice gets stayed, they still would want to put kerry in the cabinet somewhere. and then there's attorney general eric holder. long time target of conservatives. he said he's undecided about whether he wants to stay on. >> that's something that i'm in the process now of trying to determine. the first step has already occurred, that is the president has been re-elected. and i will have to think about can i contribute in a second term. i will have to obviously talk to him, speak of members in my family, particularly one, who i'm married to. and ask myself, the question about, you know, do i think that there are things that i still love to do, do i have -- let some gas still left in the tank. it's been an interesting and tough four years. >>> well, the inevitable cabinet shuffle comes at a crucial time. will the president bring in insiders or outsiders? super staffers or heavy hitters? perhaps even a repu
elections, bob shrum served as a chief strategist for john kerry's 2004 campaign and al gore's campaign in 2000. what is the one thing that you are focused on the most? terms of how this race will go? >> virginia closes its polls early. if the president carries those states, he will carry virginia. he will be in a comfortable shape for re-election. that would be the first indicator. secondly, the turnout. all anectdotal at this point this morning. in new york city where there's not a lot on the line, quite frankly, lines at the polling places are very long. i think enthusiasm is very high on both sides and we'll see a high turnout. >> hey, bob, it's ryan lizza. >> hi, ryan. >> we compare these elections to the previous election. the one that seems to make the most sense is 2004 when john kerry challenged george w. bush. you were at the center of that campaign. tell us how this is similar and different from that campaign and, you know, what you think the romney people are thinking on a night like this, going into a race that looks like it might be a little out of reach for them. but obvi
